I'm really not getting the hype over this girl. What's so special?
She is wonderful in person. Very lyrical and wonderful facial expressions that don't translate on youtube homevideos. Her jumps aren't great, but she is quite pleasant to watch.
I suppose it's too hard to judge based off a home-made vid. Her icenetwork profile lists her idol as Sasha Cohen, so I already like her better. :)
Those jumps are cheated. I also don't see the hype.
She has a Sasha "it" quality. Lovely landings on those jumps.
They are NOT Cheated as determined by a certified panel of experts. She landed 6 fully rotated and clean triples. Although Sam looks great here, this video is not indicative of her truly special presence in person. Reserve judgment until you see her skate in person!
how old is she? what is her spiral like? you know i love an amazing spiral. She has definatly caught my interest more than any of the other up and comers.
I'm surprised those were given credit.
You obviously don't know clean jumps. I saw this skater in person and her jumps were beautiful, soft landings and nice checkouts. Her interpretation of the music was fabulous! She will go all the way in this sport.
her jumps are all clean. i figure skate with her and have the same coaches and she is the most incredible person i know. she works so hard and is even working on a triple loop triple loop so everyone that says "whats so special"- well there are so many special things about her so stop judging
